Enjoying watching the progress on your new boat.
I am beginning my long term early planning for my next boat and I was wondering (if I can ask this on this forum) why you finally decided to go with the P28 instead of the NIS26? I have read quite a bit on them both and I think they are both very fine. By Graham's own admission though the P26 (the forefather of your design I suppose) is not a boat you would want to take around the Horn, whereas the NIS26 appears to be tested in just that. I should say the NIS23 has at least passed the test of some rough waters in South Australia.
Here in Alaska the Gulf can get really freaky...and I am thinking that for me to go inter island I would like to have a bit better bluewater capability.
If you have two minutes could you share your thoughts on what persuaded you to go with the P28 over the NIS?

Best of luck as you progress. I am jealous that I just finished my first boat.
Thanks also for sharing your build with us all.

Hmm - I've been hoping that someone, anyone might post a lines drawing of the P28, or at least a description of how it differs from the P26. Did I miss something?
Well, It is 2 ft longer....
But I two would enjoy seeing the accomodations plan to see what you get extra inside...

What kind of paper are you using and how is it fastened to the board.
Keep up the good work.

Looking for a 1.5HP power pack for each arm.
Time for a Kona Longboard, or two... They do take the ache away.
Cheers, and congratulations on the final-strip.
